We know, we know. You’ve heard it all before, right? But, according to producer, The Bullitts, Jay Electronica’s long awaited album Act II: Patents of Nobility (The Turn) is finally in the last process of recording and should be in your hands sooner than later.
Bullitts, who has worked closely on the elusive album, recently talked with NME and revealed that Jay Elect is currently putting the final touches on the LP. “Honestly, it’s in the last stages of recording. It’s just tinkering,” he said. “Just putting the final… you know when a builder builds a house? And when he’s finished the walls he gives them one little brush over, like a once over? And then the album will be done.”
Jay Electronica first came into the hip-hop conscious with the 2007 release of his project, Act I: Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge), which was made available via MySpace. He gained more traction in 2009 with the release of two Just Blaze produced singles, “Exhibit A” and “Exhibit C.” After a short courting from different labels, he signed with Jay Z’s Roc Nation imprint in 2010 but has been scarcely heard from, music wise, since then. But, according to Bullitts, the album is almost here and worth the wait. “His album is amazing, it’s remarkable,” he said. “It goes hand in hand with Yeezus and Magna Carta. They go hand in hand… Also, also… It’s weird how Jay Z is intricately involved with all of us, but all the albums sound so different.”
